After a 5-2 start to the non-district season, the girls basketball team will go on the road to play in The Colony tournament this Thursday through Saturday. The Leopards will open up pool play against Frisco Reedy, Lake Dallas and Hebron.

“The Colony will be a tough test for our team,” head coach Lance Boxell said. “Last season we went 3-2 in the tournament, and this year’s field is very similar.”

Senior forward Ireland Miller said she believes this weekend should give the team its best competition of the year thus far.

“This weekend should be a good test for us because all teams that we will be playing have an ability to beat us,” Miller said. “It should be some good competition.”

Last Monday, the team dismantled Creekview High School 70-34.

“Our team came out with a lot of energy and hustle, and it helps when we are hitting our shots at a such a high percentage,” Miller said.

The Leopards used the home court to their advantage as they recorded many steals and fastbreak points throughout the game

“We came out with good intensity versus Creekview and were able to force them into 30 turnovers, which led to easy baskets for us,” Boxell said.

The team is continually working on cutting down turnovers and eliminating second chance opportunities for the opposition on the offensive end of the court.

“With over half of our girls being on varsity for the first time, I thought we might have a slow start, so I am excited to see us off to a good start,” Boxell said. “I am proud of how hard we are playing each night.”

After the tournament this weekend, the team will go on the road to face Prestonwood on Tuesday, Nov. 20.
